Chewy Crack Oatmeal Cookies #fbcookieswap

confessions of a cooking diva

Let’s talk about cookies, shall we? How do you like your cookies? I like them thick and soft and I like them thin and crispy. I guess you could say I love all kinds of cookies.

I was very excited to participate again in the 5th Annual Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap. It’s so fun to participate each year. Not only does everyone get yummy cookies, but it also raises money for a great cause, Cookies for Kid’s Cancer.

I received delicious cookies from Taste, Cook, Sip, Carrie’s Experimental Kitchen and Lulu The Baker.

The cookies I sent were these Chewy Crack Oatmeal Cookies. A friend of mine shared her recipe with me and we loved them. Even my husband who claims he doesn’t like oatmeal cookies. Never fear I will always convert him to my ways. Isn’t that what every good wife does?!

These cookies are exactly as the name states, chewy. And addicting. So very addicting. We ate the majority of them in a couple of days. I also gained 5 pounds because of these cookies. Make sure you place these cookies in a sealed jar because they will dry out quickly. I love this recipe not only because it’s super quick to put together but that it has ingredients that I always have on hand in my pantry. Perfect for making a quick afternoon snack.

To Make:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Sift together in your mixing bowl the flour, soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg.
  3. Add shortening, sugar, eggs and vanilla. Mix until smooth about 2 minutes.
  4. Add the oatmeal and raisins and mix until combined.
  5. Drop heaping teaspoons onto a parchment lined cookie sheet.
  6. Bake for 12-15 minutes.
